I just saw this message:

Here is a link to a French photo store that has a partial page that says the A900 price is 2490 euros:

i'm skeptical. it says it's being sold in an unmarked box... the picture they show is the A700 then they say it's not available until Srpt 30.

Exactly, "Boitier nu" can be translated like this: boitier = box but since in English it is called "body" let us stick to body.
"Nu" = naked.
Therefore what we have is a Naked Body... wow :wink:
I hope she's young and beautiful :wink:

The lauch is on Sept 9/10 and the camera goes on sale after photokina - which matches Sept 30 exactly. So I would believe the price. That will be dependent on local VAT. I imaging the UK price will will be £2,349.50 inc VAT = £1999.50 plus VAT.

No, the Sony France/Europe prices are actually like 1Euro=1$ and sometimes even worse. Some lenses here cost more Euros than dollars. :roll:

So if 2500 Euro is true, I'd expect $2300-$2500 max in the US (plus tax).

Sorry I should have mentioned Australian $ for some reason we get to pay double (on some things) what an American would pay despite the $Au being at almost parity with the $US.

I spoke to a SONY rep here in the Chicago area ... and he vasilated between $3000-$3500 on release. They are pushing for $3000 and that's just fine, in my book, for 24.6 MP

I hope they sell plenty!

That fits with 1999 GBP plus VAT in the UK or 1999 Euros plus VAT in Europe. For the US, 2999 + tax is possible even though that would really be more like 1550 GBP. There is usually some differential between US and UK. There are some rare exceptions - I've just been buying a new 1TB Iomega FW800/400/USB RAID disk, and their US pricing is almost exactly the same in real value as the Euro pricing without VAT. For the UK, their hardware is shipped from Holland, and I am not charged any tax as I can enter a GB tax number. They also don't charge shipping.

Until early this year, Sonystyle shipped all European products from Holland too, but they never had the correct system for entering VAT registration numbers when you buy, so that tax would have been removed. They have now changed to shipping all UK deliveries from a UK depot and having a special Sonystyle UK store, which is good in one way (local service) but opens the door to differential pricing. Since Sonystyle's sales operation was always based in the UK, even then the warehouse and shipping were in Holland, the difference in service is maybe not great either.

Hi DonSchap and welcome to this forum.
Excellent pictures of planes you have on your site.
As for the price, I still wait.
